Kindergarten Registration Coming March 27

Ottumwa Community Schools will host a registration event for students entering kindergarten for the 2018-19 school year on Tuesday, March 27 beginning at 6 p.m. 

The district’s Kindergarten Open House will be held at Douma, Eisenhower, James, Horace Mann, and Wilson Schools from 6 -7 p.m. Parents are asked to contact their neighborhood school to receive a registration packet prior to attending if they haven’t received one. The packet contains several forms which need to be completed and returned to register. Forms include a student enrollment data form, certificate of immunization, and proof of birth. Iowa law requires that all students must be five-years-old on or before September 15 in the year they enroll.

Prior to the first day of school, students will also need to return the pre-enrollment physical examination form, certificate of dental screening, and a student vision card. These forms are in the enrollment packet as well as on the website under Parents, then Kindergarten Registration.

For questions regarding kindergarten registration, please contact an elementary school secretary.
